The above image is of Pam Arnold/Tiffany St.Clair on the cover of Fiesta Magazine Vol.2 No.1 (March 1968) and was sent through by Terry with another great little story. Rather than paraphrase it I’ll post it as sent by Terry as I’m sure he won’t mind and it will make the post title become clear. Anyway over to Terry …
‘Today I saw Pam Arnold on your website and it reminded me of the times I worked with her. One of the first shoots was in the studio and the attached Fiesta cover was one of the resulting pictures, but mostly we used her for filming. At that time Russell Gay had a good outlet in Denmark and we used to supply them with 16mm films depicting the so called “Joy” of nudism. Invariably it involved two girls and a guy prancing around on a beach, throwing large balls about. Any excuse! Pam did a couple of these, once working with Lena Ellis, but I can`t remember who the other girl was in the second film. We were shooting at Pegwell Bay
when there was a rather odd incident I recall. Mid afternoon we were suddenly engulfed by a swarm of small black flies. Unfortunately they all insisted on landing on Pam’s pubic area and more or less ignored the rest of us. All very embarrassing for the poor girl, no matter how many she tried to brush off they just kept returning to her most sensitive spot. Finally she threw a major wobbly and we had to pack up and move a lot further along the beach. I think that was the last time we worked with her and I am pretty sure that was when she went to GHM.’
What a fab little story and one worth sharing and I’m sure should Pam ever read this she wouldn’t mind! A big thanks to Terry again for another wonderful little story and accompanying image – Thanks Terry! Also one of the best scans of a Early Fiesta cover I’ve seen, so Terry must have kept it in good nick!
Another scan of an original Kamera Magazine, this time Erica on the cover of Kamera No.21 (1959) She appears to be on the bedroom set with that floral wallpaper again and a signed Eve Eden print in the background.
A very healthy and young looking Marie Deveraux on the cover of Health & Efficiency magazine (October 1961), nice pink bikini, but not quite sure what that is she has in her hand!
